I thought OK didn't have Verizon?
Mine is working in Rockville MD. I rushed (if you can call it that in DC traffic) home as fast as I could after work.
Since that is the only new HD I think I will go to a bar and drown my sorrows.
(my box is an HR20-700)
480/481 saying BBC confirmed but still grey screen for channel 498 on my hr20-100
Channel 498 was not in guide and not found, refreshed receiver, 498 appeared in guide after refresh Can see the message now.
HR20 -100, National release, WB68 multiswitch
I get a black screen on 498.
I get the Odd/Even confirmation on 480/481.
But, all three are coming in as 720p.
Shouldn't they be in 1080i?
I have the black screen--hr20-700
480+481 confirm the b-band converter is working
my 498 message is fine on both HR20 and H20. Haven't checked 480 yet, that will be next.
Same situation here, hr20-700 with a black screen on 498, 480+481 working fine. AT9 dish, both BBCs connected.
I can't figure out why my H20 would be working and my HR20 is not.
Channel 498 confirmed!
I just joined today and want to say that is very comforting to be on a site with people with such a passion for their home entertainment......this morning I got up, checked "All Channels"..w/ HD filter.........no new HD channels.....( how many times have we done this effort in futility this week?) a buddy suggested gettin on DBSTalk to get the real scoop on the burning question on where are the new HD channels....and it paid off.......THANKS !
This HAS to be a software problem... as I said above, 97% of the "non-'congrats screen'" people are HR-?00 owners (mostly -700s; including myself).
I don't know for sure, or have any sources or whatnot, but I'd be willing to guess a software update is necessary for our HR20s.
evens odds working also, BRING ON THE HD!: :hurah::joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah: :joy: :hurah:
3 of 3 ok in B'ham
HR-20 via BBC
2 x HR-20 via SWM-5
498 Black screen in 720p with all resolutions chosen
Me, too! But no one seems to want to try to chime in about it.
hr20-700 with black screen on 498. 480 & 481 are good. will i get d10
I'm willing to bet I'm all ready for the new HD channels too... I just can't see the congrats screen on 498. HR20 (SW V. 0x18a)+BBCs/AU9-S/WB68.
- 103b TPs are all mid-high 90s, a couple at 91/92
- Can tune into 498 fine, just get a black/gray screen; no "SFS (771)" or "CNP/FOI (721)" error messages
- 480 & 481 test channels say my BBCs are working on both sets of 103's TPs
By the looks of it, I'm all set... just not seeing what I should on 498 to make it officially complete.
Nothing working here. In fact, receiver will either lock up, reboot, or search for signal - random unsolicited reboots seem to be the biggest issue. I have all the necessary equipment and have RBR'd a few times, too, and nothing happens. Driving me crazy!
After reboot, all channels and normal functions work correctly, but if I go back to 498 the problems come right back.
Those that are not working - is the access card in your HR20 the primary access card on your account? My primary is to an access card from my old Hughes HTL-HD receiver which was supposed to be deactivated when my HR20 was installed.
Really grasping at straws here...
